The Unified Operating System is a server software program used for maintaining and running the functions of a computer and for providing a platform for applications software programs. The basic functions of an operating system include the accepting of input from a keyboard, the sending of output to a monitor, the recording and tracking of files and directories on a hard drive, and the limiting of access to secured files. An Unified Operating System was installed in a mainframe. The mainframe were accessed by users through terminals (or servers) using a command-line interface. The software was published and copyrighted by RobCo Industries in 2075 with an expiration date in 2077.

The Unified Operating System was programmed with the capacity for accepting older applications software. An example of an older program given new life on this platform is the Journal-It Software published by PagSoft in 2072.

In 2203, a new version of the original Unified Operating System was published and copyrighted by the surviving remnant of RobCo in the wastelands of the United States. The copyright on this software expired after 2205. Due to the nature of post-Great War America, copies of this software were produced in limited numbers and are very rarely seen in the Capital Wasteland. A copy is located in the terminal of the Overseer's Office in Vault 101.
